Hi guys,

I've just tried bleeching BBI's Krechet uniform to give a worn look with faded colors, but it didn't work - colors did not fade. Any ideas what else could be done to fade colors?

Thanks

Use more bleach.

... or try toning it down with pastel chalks

I use a product called "Fast Fade" made by Rit, the people who make all the fabric dyes. You can pick it up at your local supermarket, fabric store, or department store. I usually can find it at Target or Wal-Mart.

It is primarily used for jeans, but it will work on 1:6 stuff as well. You might have to experiment with the amount of "Fast Fade" you use. I usually try it out on a 21st Century uniform :lol . first.
